International students undertaking a program of study in the UK of six months or more must pay an Immigration Health Surcharge (IHS) as part of the tier 4 visa application process. The current HIS fee for a PBS Tier 4 student is GBP 225.

A new system is in place for issuing entry clearance to people coming to the UK from abroad for more than six months (and their family members)which includes Tier 4 Students. Applicants will no longer be issued with an entry clearance before they travel that covers the length of their course. A transit visa will be issued in the form of a vignette (i.e. sticker) in the passport that gives 30 days in which to both travel to the UK and go to a particular Post Office near the town they identified in the application, to collect a ‘Biometric Residence Permit” (BRP).
